More video of 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon’s offseason work

Jun 2, 2020 at 4:38 PM--

Jerick McKinnon continues his offseason work and journey back onto the football field for the first time since 2017. The San Francisco 49ers signed the running back in 2018 with the intention of making him a featured weapon on offense. McKinnon hasn't yet played a regular-season snap for the team after suffering a season-ending ACL injury just a week before his regular-season debut.

A setback before the 2019 season once again landed McKinnon on injured reserve.

Rischad "The Footwork King" Whitfield posted the following video of McKinnon showing off his footwork while training this offseason (h/t to Patrick Tulini for the find).

The latest video comes after Whitfield posted the following workout video of McKinnon last month.

McKinnon rushed for 570 yards with three touchdowns on 150 carries and added 51 receptions for 421 yards with two more scores during his last full season — a 2017 campaign with Minnesota.

The running back restructured his contract with the 49ers this offseason, reducing his salary-cap hit on what becomes a deal that will now extend only through the upcoming season.

How Kyle Shanahan's Seven-Man Protections Work in the 49ers' Offense

The seven-man pass protection in today's NFL seems a little foreign, considering how much the tight end position has evolved over the last 20 years. Today's hybrid tight end, a man built from DNA spliced from a sprinter, basketball player and professional wrestler, has an integral role in the passing attack. A generation ago, San Francisco 49ers tight end Brent Jones finished his career averaging 36.3 receiving yards per game. Flash twenty-five years in the future and tight end George Kittle is averaging 65.4 yards per game over his first three seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's system is firmly rooted in the West Coast Offense, even mimicking some of Bill Walsh's old

49ers' Kyle Shanahan expects Jimmy Garoppolo to get better each week, excited to get to work

Kyle Shanahan spoke with the voice of the San Francisco 49ers, Greg Papa, during the team's virtual State of the Franchise event this week. The head coach was asked what he sees from his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, who isn't worried about recovering from an ACL injury this offseason. "I think Jimmy had an unbelievable year last year," Shanahan said. "When you look at him statistically, just percentages and stuff of what he did, he's extremely accurate, kept us in some very good situations, and won a few games for us, too. He had a number of games where he had to come out huge on some 3rd-and-longs, some last-minute drives, and make some big plays that won us some games." Shanahan noted Garoppolo's improvement from last offseason, to the start of the regular

John Lynch says 49ers' virtual offseason has been a 'really good learning experience'

The San Francisco 49ers were about a month out from beginning their offseason program when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the team to rethink its strategy for the months ahead. Coaches learned that meeting face-to-face with their players might not happen. It still hasn't happened. The team's facilities and neighboring Levi's Stadium closed on March 13. Three months later, coaches and most staff remain shut out due to local county restrictions. Only players with pre-existing injuries, the staff responsible for their care and rehab, and select others are allowed in the building. Other players may finally be able to enter the facilities for training camp next month, at the earliest. As Zoom conference calls have replaced meeting rooms, the 49ers have
